As part of our NLHF-funded project, we commissioned artist Wilfrid Wood to create a series of drawings of some of Riverside Studios’ most famous faces, including Benjamin Zephaniah and Amy Winehouse. These have been turned into coasters, which you can pick up in our new building. Collect all twelve and learn some surprising facts about those who have helped shape Riverside Studios.
Some faces may be instantly recognisable, but their connection with our cultural venue may not be widely known. Each image is an affectionate tribute, capturing the essence of the character with a few well-placed lines. On the reverse of each coaster, we explain the Riverside connection.
